Jim Sluyter, MLUI, joins Dave with more on Food & Farming

This week's discussion continues from last week, talking about food and the localizing of our food production and supply system and consumption patterns. Localizing the food economy is critical to local resilience. Jim and Dave talk about the fragile food system is now, and how many different advances are going on, to localize Northern Michigan's agriculture. Jim details the Food and Farming Network, Taste the Local Difference, and the Michigan Good Food Charter. The talk also covers the need for improvements in the agriculture financing sector and the continuing need to grow the involvement of more and more components of  local food distribution and consumer sales.
